Nashville Brachiopods

Here are some brachiopods I saw earlier in the week in Nashville, Tennessee. I am guessing they are from either the Nashville or Maysville Groups in the Ordovician Period. This first brachiopod might be a Resserella (aka Dalmanella).

These next brachiopods might be Lepidocyclus (Orthorhynchula).

This might be the bottom half of a Hebertella brachiopod.

Maybe a Lepidocyclus brachiopod.

Again another mixture of Lepidocyclus brachiopods.

Some sort of Resserella or Hebertella brachiopods.

Thanks to the website at for help with identification.
